“Excellent seafood and value for money”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

This was a wonderful little restaurant in the heart of Avignon. The menu was varied and well-priced and the food was of an excellent standard. The seafood especially was delicious and I can certainly recommend this restaurant for those wanting an authentic French experience. The staff were friendly, the restaurant was comfortable and the head female chef obviously knows how to use local ingredients to make delicious meals at a reasonable price. I was there a couple of days after the last reviewer and found no problems.

“Not so sure about this one”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

The restaurant itself is nice and the waitress was friendly and helpful but overall we weren't happy with the food. The moules marinere were not the freshest and a little stringy. I ordered pasta with seafood and got plain pasta with pesto. Thinking it was the combination of my French and the waitress's English which had caused the confusion, she offered to add some shrimps which came after a little while. Although tasty it did add €9 to the bill - more than the cost of the seafood pasta option - which I wasn't very pleased about. Pesto pasta had a very strong garlic flavour so not overly happy with the meal for that price. Would not recommend on that basis.
